The MCRT is kind of like the Empire Trail in that it's a plan for a trail made of existing trails, potential trails, and finding a way or putting up road signs where the way is gone.

But it doesn't have a mildly maniacal governor who decided to make it a signature goal.

So sure, there are some nice bits already at the ends that already existed under other names - I'm on one all but daily. But the heavy lifting of making Belchertown to Lexington or whatever a reality rests with little people, not loud politicians.
